Well it blew up...quite spectacularly! Did it at 5500 rpm in 3rd gear on a 1/4 mile pass.
oh well it was a $200 junkyard engine that siezed up do to rust last year before i "resected it". Im impressed it made it this far lol.
Brendan has a freshly rebuilt 6 bolt w/ 2g pistons sitting waiting to go in.... so the time has come i guess!
Alot easier to swallow when its just a stock 6 bolt. The cams, L19 Headstuds and HTA68 should all still be OK...
We are hoping that pieces or anything didnt go through the turbo.... (the most exspensive part!!). I pulled the spark plug in cylinder #1 which was bashed by the free moving piston.... but i didnt see any pieces of piston or valve that had made it into the combustion chamber. It seems the rod separated from the piston... or the piston pin came out of the piston The rod is still bolted to the crank. Ill post up more carnage pics once i get the engine out and pan off.
I looked at the dataloggs during the run... everything looked good.... no knock whatsoever till a split second before it blew the datalogger went from 0 counts.... to a solid 43 counts and then boom. Im sure the solid 43 counts of knock right before she blew is from the rod coming apart....Not from detonation.....The boost was solid, did not over boost (held a solid 28 psi before she blew).
Pretty much just a tired old motor let go... it was bound to happen making 381WHP... and i sorta glad it went out with a BANG instead of slowly dying or being injured...haha
